    EB Acara theory about hybrididzing with rams

    So, I know this isn't the best forum to ask this, but I know there are a lot of knowledgeable people here, so I thought, why not ask here. I read on an article by Nathan Hill that some people seem to think that the EB Acara comes from crossbreeding the normal Blue Acara with Rams by artificial...

    Here's she now: I'm so gutted about this, since she was starting to show signs that she was breeding. Resided in her cave, male around her. And suddenly out of nowhere she's dead now. There seems to be no cause for this and I'm gutted. Sorry if I posted this here, but I felt like I needed to...

    I was wondering if there was an (updated) list of the A-numbers with their current name? I have the DATZ book but that's from 2005 and since then new apistos have been found and others have been given an official scientific name.

    Etymology of "German Blue Ram"

    I've been wondering for a while where the name German Blue Ram came from. I've always been told that it came from a time where the "true" GBRs were bred by German breeders and this meant that they were of higher quality (so to say). In an era were lots of them are mass bred in farms, they don't...

    The effects of ferts on TDS - Osmotic shock?

    I've been wondering something and I've talked about it with several people, but I couldn't find any scientific paper on the subject. Wouldn't dosing ferts combined with water changes cause changes in TDS and hence cause osmotic shock(s) which are harmful to fish?
